My experience at Crustacean rates as the WORST restaurant "experience" I've ever had (and I dine out 4 times a week--I have some experience). We arrived 5 minutes early for our 7:45 reservation and were told to wait at the bar. Fine--that's normal. The problem was that we waited for the bartender to acknowledge us for over half an hour....

Good atmosphere and very helpful waitstaff. Decided to go for the roasted crab with pepper and that's a winner, even the noodles are fantastic.

It has been a while since I've eaten at this restaurant and it is only because of distance, nothing else. Love, love the food and the service was great as always. I do say the Martini can stand for improvement and we know each bartender has their own flair so I will try a different bartender next time. The Garlic... More

We called about 3 hours in advance on a Friday night and they happily accommodated us. Looks like they can squeeze tables into nooks upstairs and downstairs to get as many people in as needed. This isn't necessarily your traditional Asian restaurant. There are some familiar favorites but there are also Asian style tacos, tapas, skewered meat, etc. The menu... More

We were a party of 5 for lunch while visiting family in LA for holidays. My sister goes frequently and loves it. I thought how good could it be? Words can't describe the quality of the food. I am picky. Not easily impressed. We ordered many of their signature dishes, apps, deserts, really everything is beyond outstanding. Very expensive but... More

If I had to choose a meal as my last - it would certainly be the roasted crab and garlic noodles! That's it! Nothing else! This place makes the most amazing crab and noodles! It is expensive but def worth it!

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighbourhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
